It’s no secret that Columbus is an auto-centric city. Many commuters drive their cars to every destination they visit every single day. Several local organizations are challenging citizens to see if they can try rethinking their commute. On Friday, September 18th, Columbus will take part once again in the national PARK(ing) Day event, that transforms parking spaces for other uses for a day. Also, Tuesday, September 22nd marks the world-wide Car Free Day, which encourages everyone to utilize alternative modes of transportation.
I interviewed Laura Koprowski, the Director of Public & Government Affairs at the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission (MORPC) to learn more about these two events. You can read the full interview here: Two Opportunities to Ditch The Car This Week.
